‘Stay Well This Winter’
Cold weather doesn't have to go hand in hand with illness. Here are some simple things you can do to help yourself stay well this winter.
PRACTICE CLOSED FOR STAFF TRAINING
Please note that the Practice closes early one afternoon each month for staff training. The next training afternoon is on Wednesday 20 April 2016. Both surgeries will close at 1.00pm. If you need to speak to a doctor during this time then you should dial the free NHS telephone number: 111. However, if you have an emergency situation you should dial 999.
